What an encouragement the last 11 weeks has been as an average of 10 of us met each Wednesday evening to delve deep into a better understanding of the Christian faith. These are the topics we covered, through video clips and around table discussion:
Is There More to Life Than This
Who Is Jesus?
Why Did Jesus Die?
How Can I Have Faith? Why and How Do I Pray?
Why and How Should I Read the Bible?
How Does God Guide Us?
Who Is the Holy Spirit?
What Does the Holy Spirit Do?
How Can I Be Filled with the Holy Spirit?
How Can I Make the Most of the Rest of My Life?
How Can I Resist Evil?
Why and How Should I Tell Others?
Does God Heal Today?
What About the Church?
Each Wednesday evening we shared a meal together. Julie, Alistair, Paula and Vivienne as leaders, started out the cooking, but by the end of Alpha nearly all of us had cooked for each other. Awesome food! Awesome company!
Next year four of the participants on Alpha have volunteered to run it again. This will take place mid year, during our winter months.
I would like to thank all of our wonderful guests for being so committed to the 11 weeks. Your feedback says that you have been richly blessed. Thank you to my fellow leaders, Paula and Alistair. It’s been wonderful to serve alongside you. Thank you to Vivienne who has downloaded and shown the video clips each week. We so appreciate our tech people. A big thanks to Esther for hosting us for our “Holy Spirit” weekend. This was the highlight of our course. Lastly, thank you to those of you who transported people to and from Alpha. The beauty of church community, fellowship, discipleship and service was definitely displayed over the last 3 months
God bless you all on your continued journey with our Lord Jesus Christ.
